Former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif (2nd R) sits with opposition leader Qazi Hussain Ahmed (R) as cricket-turned politician Imran Khan (L) speaks with media representativs after an All Parties Democratic Movement (APDM) meeting in Lahore, 29 November 2007. Sharif said that an alliance of opposition parties will boycott elections in January 2008 and would try to persuade others including Benazir Bhutto to join them. President Pervez Musharraf announced in a televised address to the nation that he would lift a state of emergency on 16 December. Musharraf, who had been sworn in earlier in the day as a civilian for a second term as president, declared the emergency on November 3 to tackle what he said was growing Islamic militancy and an interfering judiciary.
